Perhaps an odd question I don’t know… But what does Monchi actually mean, and where does the name come from?
Obvious his actual name is Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo, so it isn’t perhaps immediately apparent from that?
Did anyone ever see him play also? I can’t say I did. I sort of started getting into Spanish football at the end of Unzue’s reign in the Sevilla goal and the only other Goalkeeper I remember for Sevilla from those early years was a Norwegian guy by the name of Frode Olsen.
